Bug#241494: partman: cannot reuse existing partition

Package: debian-installer
Version: 20040331
Tags: d-i

During manual partionning, when trying to reuse the single-partition (but
reformatting it) on my HD image from qemu, I can select the partition, but
when I select the "file system type" item I'm brought back to the
manual-patitionning menu.

If then I select the line describing the disk, I'm brought back to main d-i
menu instead.  I expected some menu allowing me to destroy all partitions.

Note: even with an initial patition table on the disk, I could not make the
auto-partitionning work.

Workaround: If I first delete the partition, things proceed as expected.
